Apparently, in protest of the seal hunt, Costco has pulled seal oil capsules from the shelves of all its Canadian stores.
From what I've read, a lot of people are ticked off (although I'm sure there are some that are tickled pink, like Sir Paul & "Lady" McCartney). Here's a VOCM article about Costco's decision, and the province of Newfoundland and Labrador's reaction. I expect to hear more about this on the evening news.
Nancy Burden's blog has Costco Canada's contact information, if you're the letter-writing/emailing/phoning type.
April 1st update: PETA spokeswoman Pamela Anderson (in Halifax to host the Juno Awards) admitted in her press conference that she's never spoken to anyone involved in the sealing industry, but says she 'knows people who have.' She's also sure that there aren't any young people in Canada who support the seal hunt. GAH!!! It pisses me off when celebrities spout blanket statements like that, especially when they've never talked to people on the 'other side'!If you'd like an interesting read, check out this letter about the history of Newfoundland and Labrador sealing industry, sent to Larry King, The McCartneys, and Danny Williams. Also watch the Canadian National Film Board's documentary, My Ancestors Were Rogues and Murderers.
